    • Frasier: Daphne is cooking dinner for your date with a fictitious woman? Why not set a place for the March Hare and The Mad Hatter?

    • Roz: Who would have thought it? Mr. PBS watching a trashy mini-series.
      Frasier: I don't think it's trashy at all. In fact, I think the intricacies of the plot are downright Dickensian.
      Roz: Yeah, Angie Dickensian!

    • Niles: I had no idea you knew so much about sopranos.
      Daphne: Yeah, well, you don't live with your brother for five years and not learn a thing or two about divas.

    • Daphne: How are you at chopping vegetables?
      Niles: Are you kidding? You don't get forearms like these from just conducting your stereo.

    • Frasier: Daphne is cooking dinner for your date with a fictitious woman? Why not set a place for the March Hare and The Mad Hatter?


      Frasier is referring to the Mad Hatter's tea party from Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which when Alice arrives, involves switching places at the table at any given time (although based on the rotation, the Hatter is the only one to receive a clean cup since the other characters follow him); making (along with the March Hare) somewhat short, personal remarks; asking unanswerable riddles, and reciting nonsensical poetry, all of which eventually drive Alice away.
